An Herbalist's Library
Hello everyone! I've been gardening in general for a few years, but have recently become interested in herbs for health and beauty and have been trying to find good books on the subject.
There are so many out there, its overwhelming, and so I was wondering if you all could share your favorites with me? You know, the ones you couldn't live without, who are so well used that their bindings are falling apart. Maybe you've even had to buy a second copy, it was so worn!
I'm looking for books that list a good amount of herbs, and have pretty detailed descriptions of both how to grow them and how/where to use them or what to use them in (ie. salves/ointments, dry skin moisturizers, antiseptic, digestive aids, etc). I focus more on the beauty aspect than general health, but a book that lists all uses wouldn't be turned down!
Thanks for your help, and if there is a thread, or multiple threads, that have already been started regarding this, please just point me in the right direction! :)
